About DryDev

The Drylands Development Programme (DryDev) is a six-year initiative (August 2013 to July 2019) funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) of the Netherlands, with a substantial contribution from World Vision Australia (WVA). With the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) as the overall implementing agency, DryDev is being implemented by a consortium of five National Lead Organizations (NLOs) and 13 Implementation Partners (IPs) in selected dryland areas of Burkina Faso, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mali and Niger.

This integrated development programme seeks to meaningfully contribute to the realization of a vision where households residing in such areas have transitioned from subsistence farming and emergency aid to sustainable rural development. It aims to reach over 227,000 farmers across the five target countries with proven interventions for ensuring food and water security enhancing productivity at both watershed and farm levels.
